    Thanks for the links to the interviews, both HELL and HEAVY LOAD interviews will be great reading. I do have 2 HEAVY LOAD videos - a copy of the official Death or Glory official Live video (not an original sadly, but a copy transferred to DVD) and I have a good (considering the age and all) audience recording on DVD of 1985-7-19, a 39 minute set at Folkets Park, Ljusdal - Ljusdalsfestivalen,
    with the tracklist
    1. Heavy Metal Angels (In Metal & Leather)
    2. Guitar Problem > Bass & Drum Jam
    3. Ragne Wahlquist Guitar Solo
    4. Dark Nights
    5. Singing Swords
    6. Ever Be Again
    7. Saturday Night
    8. Monsters Of The Night

    No problem at all! However, my upload speed is slow. The gig is 2.6 GB in size, so it will take a few days I think for me to do it. But if you can wait, I think you will like it! I will start uploading it today, and post it here. (beer1)

    That's awesome, however it makes this more painful:

    HR: Most of the Heavy Load albums are absolutely hard to get, and bootlegged million times... Don't you think it's a time for re-release?

    Actually yes, but Ragne holds all rights and is not to keen on any re-releases.

    Who needs a reissue, really? their LP's are for sale daily at Ebay, stores and other sites, they are not that expensive or hard to find. Maybe those who only collect's CD's would like to have a CD-reissue in their hands.. but I am fine with the vinyls. (cheers2)

    Anyway, IF the reissue would include UNRELEASED SONGS.. then I'm very interested (hehe)

    Cool to see a new interview but his answers were a little short. It gives me hope that they might reform someday so I might get to see them play but I'm not holding my breath.
    Yeah, the Lp's are easy to get but it would be nice to see them re-issued with plenty of bonus tracks. It sounds like they have a lot of stuff on tapes just lying around gathering dust.

    Amazing band so hopefully they will be one of the headliners at KIT next year! (vking1)

    It probably is - this has been converted to DVD and is widely available through bootleg sites - you can ask for the tracklisting - the Promo video has the tracks
    01. Heavy Metal Angels (in Metal & Leather)
    02. Dark Nights
    03. Bleeding Streets
    04. Daybreak Ecstasy
    05. Take Me Away
    06. You've Got the Power
    07. Little Lies

    In fact I have got the promo video on DVD R , I was asking about this , cause the bootleg I saw on some mailorder was with a different booklet. I also suppose this is the same video as the promo one, the problem is that the item is out of stock everywhere; so it's difficult to ask for tracklisting.

    There is lots of unreleased Heavy Load material. Alot of MINDBLOWING stuff. Hoping for a rerelease of the stuff I own, but it's only the band that can make that decision.

    ex-Heavy Load frontman Eddy Malm releases debut album

    http://i.imgur.com/BRdqG9d.png

    Eddy Malm are back!. In December he will release his debut album 'Northern Lights' on the greek label No Remorse Records (CD and vinyl). I personally love this, it's like a mix between Heavy Load and Highbrow. What do you guys think?

    https://www.facebook.com/EddyMalmBand/
    http://www.eddymalmband.com/

    Official announcement: No Remorse Records proudly presents Eddy Malm Band “Northern Lights”. Eddy Malm gained success with Swedish metal pioneers HEAVY LOAD in the early 80s. In 1998, guitarist Per Hesselrud approached Eddy with the aim of making a comeback album, just because he admired Eddy’s voice and his heartfelt lyrics. Many evenings were spent talking through life in general, music and the possibility of a comeback. After years, the band was contacted by No Remorse Records and the comeback became reality. After the “Special Up The Hammers Edition” 3-song tape (limited to 100 copies) that was sold-out during the last Up The Hammers Festival where Eddy Malm performed along with some special guests with Heathens From The North (Heavy Load tribute band), the album “Northern Lights” is ready and set for release. The line-up of Eddy Malm Band is Eddy Malm (lead vocals), Per Hesselrud (lead and rhythm guitars), Tomas Malmfors (bass), Micke Kerslow (drums) and the album was recorded between August 2014 and May 2016. All the songs evolved slowly and gracefully and the album became like an extension of the classic hard rock albums from the late 70s and early 80s. Eddy’s vocals, the music and the lyrics became just like a vintage wine with loads of input from Per Hesselrud, Tomas Malmfors and Micke Kerslow. The album contains a few, Eddy-written Heavy Load and Highbrow songs but recorded with new arrangements. Release date for “Northern Lights”, both on CD and vinyl, is scheduled for December 9th, 2016.



    Eddy Malm – Vocals
    Per Hesselrud – Guitars
    Tomas Malmfors – Bass
    Mikael “Micke” Kerslow – Drums

    1. Saturday Night
    2. Heart Of A Warrior
    3. I Had Enough
    4. Turn It Down
    5. Nasty Woman
    6. Dark Nights
    7. Get Out Of Here
    8. Danger
    9. A Loser
    10. Northern Lights
